The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on rescuing and rehabilitating severely abused animals. We specialize in abuse and neglect cases - we rescue them, provide full rehabilitation services, and then work to find them perfect homes.
What makes us different from other rescues is that the animals we take in are not shelter animals or strays. They are animals we saved from severe abuse cases. They've been beaten and tortured for years. torture and have been waiting for the day that someone would come to save them. They have been waiting for someone to come and pull from the dying ground their beating hearts.
We find these animals through other organizations and our network of people that inform us of these abuse cases. We go into the streets and even into gang territory to find and rescue them. Then we spend months rehabilitating them and once they are healthy and fully adoptable, they are brought to the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation in Sherman Oaks, where they stay until they find their forever home.
Our rescue is built into The PetStaurant, a natural food and wellness company owned and operated by Nutritionist and Herbalist Marc Ching. Our organization is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization, so all donations are fully tax deductible. Thank you for your help and support.
